Mike Mayock: Randy Gregory a good fit for the Arizona Cardinals

Apr 24, 2015, 12:17 AM | Updated: 12:17 am

Keeping up with all of the mock drafts, it seems the Arizona Cardinals will either draft a pass-rusher or a running back. Since they don’t pick until the 24th spot, it’s hard to predict who will even be available that late in the first round.

Regardless of who might still be on the table, NFL.com’s Mike Mayock said Randy Gregory would be a great fit for the Cardinals.

Thanks to a positive drug test at the NFL Scouting Combine and a history of failed drug tests in college, the Nebraska pass rusher’s draft status is difficult to peg. Mayock indicated Gregory could land at any number of draft slots, but mentioned either of the Saints’ two first-round picks (Nos. 13 and 31) or Arizona at No. 24 as possibilities.

The former Cornhusker visited Arizona earlier this month.

Gregory was a star his last two seasons at Nebraska. He recorded 17.5 sacks, 120 total tackles, two forced fumbles and two interceptions.

The Cardinals ranked 24th in the NFL with 35 sacks as a team last season.
